In honor of Bach’s Birthday in March, I thought I’d start a Name that Bach! Party!

Submit a video of yourself playing at least 8 measures from a Bach piece (feel free to play more!)

Don’t tell us which piece it’s from – let the rest of us try to guess first.

Here’s mine (I did 9 ¼ measures):

https://drive.google.com/file/.....sp=sharing

As a side note, Bach in the Subways (15-21 Mar) is an annual worldwide March event (was pretty much cancelled last year because of COVID) for all to experience Bach’s music.

This event was first started in 2010 by a cellist playing the Bach Cello Suites in the subways of NYC as a means for people to have “a chance to experience this music live and up close”.  

I’m participating in a group of my teacher’s students on 19 Mar (with appropriate COVID safety measures, of course).

It is for musicians of all levels (& it doesn’t have to be played in a subway).  You can read about the program here:  https://bachinthesubways.org/

First time I have played this in a year, Emily said I made a mistake so I did it again so as not to anger her😉

TERRIFIC party idea! I need to get out my Bach Cello Suites book that I have not had out in a year. This may take me a while.

@stringy - 

Nice!   

You officially made this a PARTY! 

I'm afraid I'm stumped on this one - don't recognize it.

I don't recognize very much Classical

... and I'm way behind.

@stringy - 

Bach Gavotte in G Minor? 

 

SO FUN! 

 

giphy.gif

 

...but I think you were playing a note off back then (I don't mean your intonation was off). 🤭 

Still, you played it great!

Hmm Thinking Here Smiley

I better give everyone else a chance to guess these.

Thanks, all--

@stringy

I just came across the Gavotte in G minor back in July –someone else on the forum (bocaholly) recommended a book of violin duets, & this was the 1st one (arranged as violin duet) in the book (titled, 25 duetti violinistici per principianti, arranged by Luigi Rago). 

https://fiddlerman.com/forum/c.....beginners/

I’ve looked up that it is in Suzuki Book 3 as well.  Good playing on it—it is tricky on the slurs.  Thanks for joining the party--

Bach Double Concerto in D Minor - 2nd Violin?

 

 

@ELCBK Yes—Concerto in D minor for two violins and piano and unofficially as "The Bach Double"  I’m playing (kind of slow) the first nine measures of the 2nd violin part (2nd violin starts the piece). 

There’s a movie starring Meryl Streep, Music of the Heart, based on the documentary Small Wonders (both wonderful to watch) about Roberta Guaspari, a violin teacher who founded the Opus 118 Harlem School of Music.  At the end of the film, The Bach Double is played by the students & many famous violinists at Carnegie Hall.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/....._the_Heart

Streep actually took a lot of time & effort to prepare for playing violin in the film (unlike a lot of actors, if you ever seen it discussed by TwoSet Violin in multiple videos). 

An article that talks about Streep’s preparation:

https://ew.com/article/1999/11.....yl-streep/

 

TwoSet Video By FAR the WORST Violin Acting (Extremely Sacrilegious):

This is so cool party theme! 🥳🥳 I will definitely join as soon as I have a little time to record something!

I recognized Gavotte which @stringy played because it’s also in the Suzuki cello book 3.

I didn’t know what @SharonC was playing, but it was really nice too! Thank you!

That was awesome! 

(edited - my guess was wrong!)

What I want to know is what does the "BWV Anhang 116" mean?  

Loved the visual effects, also!

giphy.gif

Okay, confess I had to look it up because I knew

it wasn't the Minuet in G I normally think of. 

I won't guess anymore... promise.

@Sasha Awesome Job!  I like your version—nice backing & visuals—

@ABitRusty  Nice choice—I really like this piece (as party host, I’ll hold off giving the name).  8 measures not so bad, right? 

I think Bach would be pleased bachbday2.jpg

                             (I know Anhang is "to hang") 
  

BWV = Bach works directory (or catalogue).  How Bach’s music is organized.  

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.....erzeichnis

The “Anhang” (attachment, for “Appendix”) is for works that are attributed to Bach, but their authenticity has not been fully secured.
